  • Hey man, I want to thank you a lot for these kind of guides. You’re really good in explaining what to do and you’ve been of great help in my job. Thanks a lot.

  • Helo Mas Iman,
    id’like to ask about zimbra LOG, could it sync with other syslog server, such as Kiwi syslog server?

    thanks a lot..

  • thank you so much mas Iman for the answer,

    i have another question mas,,

    i have only 1 mail server,
    but i have 2 ip public.
    and 1 domain

    so far, i have the configuration like this :
    domain : mail.kahar.com –> ip public A –> mail server

    i want to set up fail over,,
    if the ip public A is down will automatically switch to ip public B.

    what should i do firts mas?
    should i set the cpanel on domain the ip public B?
    curently ns1.kahar.com using ip public A.

    please i really need your advice, master iman..

    i thank you very very much…
    regards,

    • Hi Kahar,

      You can use 2 ip public refer into single name (mail.kahar.com). Please configure in public dns (cPanel, sPanel or something else)

    • Hello Kamall,

      Please try to configure PublicServiceHostname. Login to Zimbra Admin | Configure | Domains | Edit Domain | PublicServiceHostname. Insert URL access to your Zimbra. Example : mail.imanudin.net
